A story in every picture


Michael MacRae was another artist I was drawn to at FanExpo Vancouver. Currently a student at Emily Carr, Michael is both an amazing illustrator and a highly imaginative storyteller. The intriguing backstories he creates for his art leave you wanting to know more.

She’s just a figment of my imagination, she’s the one I turn to when I let my mind wander, she is made for me and only me.”

It reminded me of my main character, Fate Floyd, who has a similar relationship with a boy named Finn.

FlightAnd this one titled, “Flight” is another piece that made me think of Fate when she gives herself the power to fly through her Words of Making.
